For years, we pretty much prepared only steamed vegetables. In many cases, I think that steaming enabled us to eat healthier and tastier food. But now I'm starting to see that there are applications where, for reasons of taste and texture, boiling may be best with some foods.
There are certain locations that for years can seem cursed. Papaspiro's, now apparently thriving, moved into a location on Lake Street that had seen a number of tenant restaurants (Tsukiji, Pacific Rim, Green Onion, etc.) come and go before one finally "hit." Similarly, the corner of Madison and Desplaines has had a parade of tenants; Yilin, the newest resident of this space, may have staying power.
To "What's your favorite restaurant?" I usually answer "Birrieria Zaragoza on Pulaski," because that place, which specializes in stewed goat meat, is one of the few places I've ever gone to more than once. Now, there's a Birrieria Zaragoza in Melrose Park. Huzzah!
